“delightful!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Very clean and well-kept Aquarium. Easy to manuever around a group or crowd in that areas were open, so there was no congestion even though we were there on a busy morning. Views were clearly marked and well-staged. Lovely facility.

“Nice Aquarium”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We went to the Aquarium and saw a lot of nice sea life. The fish we saw were very interesting. The birds were great too. Did not have a enough time to read everything that I would have like to.

“Oh, Those Penguins”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

The AAA book recommended one hour minimum, we had no trouble spending over three hours here. We took advantage of nearly all the demonstrations, watched videos, took photos. We especially enjoyed the sharks and loved watching the the penquins settle down on their sleeping mats. Most of the exhibits remind us of man's deleterious effect on oceans and their inhabitants; for us this was a bit too much after a while.

“Very nice aquarium!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

The aquarium was a short drive from the Hollywood area and a fun day trip. We were able to secure a coupon that gave us a significant savings on our tickets. The aquarium was interactive and the employees were friendly. Loved the outdoor penguin area and the jellyfish collection. The gift shop was large and bright with a large selection of items.

“Glad We Stopped”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

didn't even plan this but it was close to the RV park we chose - there is so much to do and see there. Professional presentations on the order of Sea World but much more personable. Really enjoyed it, and it's close to Harbor Tours and Whale Watching Tours and many restaurants.
